Let's Wander and Explore by Kylie Kingham!

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. It’s Kylie back with you all to share a fun new layout I have been working on featuring the divine Simple Vintage Great Escape collection. This is a lovely ‘outdoorsy’ themed range perfect for scrapbooking and documenting any camping, picnic, bush walking or hiking photos you may have. I’ve documented some photos of my kiddos from when they were ‘much’ smaller, when we took a walk through some botanical gardens.

I love to layer papers together to create a frame. For this page I layered together ‘Made To Wander’, ‘3 x 4 elements’ and ‘4 x 6 elements’. I measure these purely by eye and cut them slightly smaller as I layer them together. I really love seeing a hint of a co-ordinating pattern and colour between layers. I always use double sided tape to adhere them together as I find glue can make the paper warp a little. Using the ‘Fern’ paper I added a decorative punched strip to the top and bottom edge of my page.

Both of my photos were printed in colour to 3.75” x 3.75” and backed with some of the ‘Nature Lover’ paper. I cut an extra 2 squares of this paper and lined them with ‘Time For Adventure’.

Each square was adhered in a grid format to the centre of my page. Using a scalloped circle punch I added a ‘Terracotta’ circle to each blank square. I wanted these to be a fun layered cluster of embellishments and add more colour to my page, so have used a combination of stickers and chipboard stickers to do so.

Oversized titles are my favourite so I couldn’t resist finishing off my page with the large ‘Wander’ word title from the chipboard stickers. Once completed it added a lovely balance to my overall design.

Thanks so much for taking a look at my layout. I hope it has given you a little inspiration for your own scrapbooking. Perhaps you have some ‘Nature’ themed photos of your own for preserving….In which case the Great Escape collection will be perfect!

Until next time!
